Sen. McConnell plans to move forwardSeptember/October 2020
Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death leaves an vacancy on the Court.
Within an hour after the news of Justice Ginsburg’s death, Sen. Mitch McConnell said that he was prepared to move forward on President Trump’s next nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court.
“This is like an ‘October Surprise’ in an election year that was not initiated by either Party, but by God Himself,” said Kent Ostrander, executive director of The Family Foundation. “This will change all election battles in races across the nation because it will change the turnout.”
Ginsburg had served on the Supreme Court since 1993 and is well-known for championing women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, and unfortunately, abortion rights as well.
“Kentuckians should take heart,” said Ostrander. “Because the only way a politician can take such a bold stand six weeks before a hotly-contested election is if he knows the citizenry ‘has his back.’ So even now, Kentucky is playing a key role in the unraveling of the wrongful Roe v Wade decision.”
